It's More Than Just A Game

The Armed Forces Cup was created to reward those VGA members with the most participation throughout the VGA Tour season in a Ryder Cup styled match play championship between branches.

This year, our championship field consists of five service branch teams representing the top VGA points earners per branch per region. Each player’s selection is a testament to their dedication to the VGA, their service to our country, and their love of the game of golf.


The Veteran Golfers Association is dedicated to enriching the lives of Veterans and their family members through the sportsmanship and camraderie of golf.
